Agricultural hazard in Greenland

Sheep farming is the main occupation in the little town of Qarssiasuk. Although in recent years, climate change has causes several problems to the farmers. Droughts are getting more common than ever and it’s been causing a surplus in the quantity of grass for the sheeps to feed on. This results in the farmers having to kill their sheeps and a decline in their income for the next season. Due to temperature rise, the heat has been causing heat stroke to the animals as well.

About the Author Kalinda Palmer

I can’t express how much I value the environment and the land we live on.

Studying VCE Environmental Science in 2014 has educated me on the issues relating to global warming and climate change. I am now studying VCE Environmental science, Biology, Chemistry and Agriculture and have my final year exams in November.
My studies highlighted the fragility of the polar ice caps and the environmental consequences of habitat loss. Comprehending how quickly the world is changing I believe that action needs to take place as expeditiously as possible.

I feel a strong sense of responsibility to help protect the world we walk, swim and crawl on.
